The Bellevue Botanical Garden is an urban refuge, encompassing 53-acres of cultivated gardens, restored woodlands, and natural wetlands. The living collections showcase plants that thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Our demonstration of good garden design and horticulture techniques inspire visitors to create their own beautiful, healthy gardens. We provide a place of beauty, serenity, and learning for thousands of visitors each year. There are also many fun things to do throughout the seasons: plant sales, community celebrations, summer concerts, art exhibits and holiday light festivities.

We've been to botanical gardens around the country and the Bellevue Botanical Garden was one of our top picks. Not only is this gem free, it has a gorgeous and interesting mixture of perennials in fantastic combinations. The lunch cafe was good also.
